About this course
Join us to celebrate Summer Solstice Season 2020
Explore the Summer Solstice season and create your own celebrations to honour the Peak of Summer Fire and Magick!
This course is for those stepping into the energy of the Summer Solstice of June 20th, as we begin the peak of summer season in the Celtic Wheel of the Year, which is with us until the arrival of Lunasa on August 1st.
We will use the framework of the Celtic cosmology of Land, Sea and Sky —which exist in both the physical and spiritual realms — to explore the celebrations of Summer Solstice, known as Samhradh in Irish: practices, history, herbs and plants, gods and goddesses, rituals, divination and more.
Here is a short summary of what we will explore in the course:
Traditions and history of MidSummer celebrations in Celtic (and other) cultures and spiritualities
Land (Talam), Middle World: working with plants, trees herbs and crystals; grounding meditations; the magic and medicine of St John's Wort, and other plants associated with MidSummer
Sea (Muir), Under World: Soul Work, magical connections with the Sídhe (the Faerie realms), journeys, rituals, exploring an animal ally associated with the Sea realm (Swan)
Sky (Nem), Upper World: the medicine of the Sun, Moon and Stars; lunar/solar events (such as Eclipse season), divination practices; sacred crafts of Air (incense, candles); history, practices and rituals associated with the gods and goddesses of MidSummer such as Áine and Lugh
